About D. Cole Jewelers

D. Cole Jewelers is a small, family owned and operated jewelry store in the Old Port of Portland, Maine since 1981. It was started by Dean and Denise Cole after they had been selling jewelry at craft shows in college and over their summers starting in 1977. They opened their first seasonal store in 1980 in Saco and moved to the Old Port in 1981. They have remained there and expanded twice within the same space. Their family has grown to include their son Ryan, daughter Emily, daughter-in-law Lindsey, and Denise’s brother Jeff. Three talented jewelers create many of the pieces you see: dazzling engagement rings and custom designed wedding bands…breathtaking, wearable works of art created just for you. We also work with many different artists from around the country.

What We Design…


More than just for engagements and weddings, the right ring can express your individuality and style more than any other piece of jewelry.


Earrings are one of the most versatile, and fashionable pieces of jewelry you can own. So much that, of course, you have to have many, many pairs!


One of today’s hottest fun, fashion trends is actually an 80’s comeback with various styles of chain link bracelets showing up on wrists everywhere.


This years motto for engagement rings is… anything goes! From various cuts and colors of diamonds from trillion and marquise to gray and chocolate, let us help you create a truly unique statement.


A perfect match at the altar and on your finger – these days, wedding ring sets come in all shapes, colors, stones and settings. From traditional to avant garde, let us help you explore your options.


And then sometimes you just want to create something totally unique that says “This is me!” whether it’s a ring, bracelet, necklace, brooch or earrings, we can make your dream a reality.


Single or layered, the pendant necklace is the must have jewelry item of the year. The other trend is layering light, delicate necklaces with big, chunky, bold, gold.


At D. Cole, you’ll find unique collections like The Ryan Cole Collection, featuring a spectacular design that showcases both his talent and the state of Maine.
